The Police in the United Kingdom take hate crime very seriously. Most citizens are supportive of those who have to flee strife where they live but, as in any society, there are others who will take advantage of new arrivals or even demonstrate hostility towards them.

The police do not tolerate the targeting of anyone based on their ethnicity or other characteristic.

Your immigration status is irrelevant and everyone has a right to live their life in the UK free from targeted abuse, whether you are here temporarily or permanently.

The True Vision website provides a lot of information about hate crime and related matters and allows the reporting of hate crime online. 

You can even report hate crime anonymously or through a non-police organisation if needed.
